DIES WHEN ENGINE GETS WAR

1989 Ford Ranger

Engine Performance problem
1989 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles

I have replaced the coils, plugs, and wires. Drained the fuel and replaced with new. When the truck gets warm there is no power it runs at about 35 then slows down and shuts off. It will restart but doesn't stay started. When the engione is cool it starts and runs until it gets warm the starts to stutter

Same problem for me (1988 Ranger) I did not think it was the things you listed above because the engine runs perfectly, but obviously something is wrong.
Nor does it does not appear to be the idle adjust.
Ive driven the car for a couple years like that (just sidestepping the gas/clutch at lights etc) but I'd like to fix the truck up now that gas is getting so expensive.
What's left to look at? Vacuum? Egr?
DeepFreeze, let me know if you figure it out.
Thanks
